Meet Siobhan

I’m Siobhan and my role at Platfform is Head of Service for Children and Young People and I LOVE my job. My job involves supporting the team to achieve their goals and creating a good working environment where everyone feels accepted but is also challenged to grow. I’ve always felt passionately that work should be a place we like to be and something that brings out the best in us and is also FUN! I spend time in meetings that also feed into the future of our services and listen to what the team and young people are saying about what matters when it comes to young people’s mental health and wellbeing. Then I put together action plans and check how things are going. What I love about my job the most is that it’s varied and that I get to listen and learn new things daily. I have learnt so much working at Platfform and I really appreciate that. My favourite hobby at the moment is listening to TedTalks and Youtube videos, there’s so much information out there at a click of a button! My favourite quote is the following by Helen Keller. "When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another." I love this quote because when we do the best we can (which will never be perfect by the way!), great things happen but we don’t always realise this! it’s tempting to think we can’t make a big difference in this world, but the small things we do every day, especially the things we do for others can make HUGE miracles happen and the best part is we may never know! To me this quote is full of possibilities and I like to think there are lots of miracles out in the world because of people who just did their best and didn’t do it for the glory!
